Reviewing Completely Contest

Monday, April 19th, 2010

We’re excited to announce that Patrick T. of Maine is the lucky winner of an 8Gig Video Nano IPod after sending in his review of “Completely”. See below what Patrick wrote. Thanks to all reviews that were sent in (you’re all winners in our book). To see what they wrote, click here.

“Just when youre ready to throw your radio out the window comes its savior. Completely the new album by The Jamie McLean Band makes you put the radio down and just relax. With songs like Cupid greatest thief, Checkmate and the title I am reminded of the rock I grew up on listening to Completely its full of heart great riffs and soulful vocals. Anyone who loves Tom Petty, the black crows, Dylan, just plain old rock and roll must make this one of there must haves. I thank the band for giving me hope that the whole music industry isn’t a bunch of soul sucking suits. Completely will complete any music library.”
– Patrick T from Maine
